Gainfully employed again
Yes, I have a new full-time gig as a staff writer-but-mysteriously-titled-Senior Editor at In These Times, a national print magazine out of Chicago. I happily get to stay in the less-windy climes of San Francisco but still work with the charming, very smart folks over at ITT.
While a salary is nice, I'm also relieved to the prospect of having an alternative measure of my competence than the abysmal traffic reports that land in my In Box every Monday. Nothing like a day job to legitimize rank amateurism.
As for the blog, my very select audience can rest assured that I plan to continue to embrace failure -- if only because even disappointment deserves a hug, dammit!
P.S.: Here's my overdue review of James Surowiecki's "The Wisdom of Crowds": umm, f*** off.
